Honda plans to showcase their new small car concept to the world at the Delhi Auto Expo 2010. Info on that and more details on other exhibits from Honda in the official press release below :

Quote:

New Delhi, December 21: Honda Siel Cars India (HSCI) today announced its plans for a World Premier of the “Honda New Small Concept” at the 10th Auto Expo 2010 to be held in New Delhi starting from 5th January 2010.

Honda New Small Concept is a concept model of a new small-sized vehicle which Honda is currently developing especially for India and other emerging nations.

In addition to the Honda New Small Concept, Honda will also exhibit the CR-Z Concept 2009, a concept model for a new hybrid model, which was unveiled for the first time at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2009.

With the booth concept of “Inspired by Dynamism - Truly Honda by Nature”, Honda will express its relentless dynamism to create cutting edge technologies and its commitment to protect the environment for future generations. True to its nature of challenging spirit and bringing together the seemingly incongruous ends, Honda will bring alive the theme of its booth through an attractive range of displays.

Honda will personify Human Dynamism in the form of the much-loved, humanoid Robot, the ASIMO. Besides enthralling the audiences at the Expo with its ability to walk forward and backward, climb stairs, the ASIMO will also show its advanced mobility capabilities through running in a circular pattern.

The special display zone named "Design Corner” will feature a glimpse of the elements involved in designing a car from scratch. This corner will also have contests for visitors where they would be asked to design futuristic cars of their choice.

Adding glamour and spunk to the Honda booth will be the ‘The Jazz Corner’ which will showcase Mugen fitted Honda Jazz in trendy colors.

An exclusive “Engine section” will feature the advances made by Honda in the engine technology realizing both superior power and low fuel consumption. Also on display will be Honda’s commitment to passenger and pedestrian safety through G-CON technology and safety features which come as standard on all Honda cars.

Apart from the new products Honda will also display its current refreshed range of cars which includes City 1.5 V, New Civic, Accord V6 and New CR-V.

Tata to come up with few surprises and concept cars? Yes, if you beleive Tata Motor's MD.

Quote:
When asked if Tata Motors would showcase the product in Delhi Auto Expo next month, Telang said: "We will have surprises in the Expo. We will showcase some concept cars, some ready products. Its too early to talk about it, lets see what we have in Auto Expo."
Ready products would be Xover, the Ace Van and/may be the Safari. What about the concept cars? Nano Europa?

I was just thinking that all of us BHPians should wear T-BHP t-shirts so that we can spot each other well in the Auto Expo, also it will be a great Advertising of our Forum. Wat Say... ??

Got it, thanks a ton Sid.

Surprised that HM-Mitsu would miss out on the biggest auto event. You'd think they actually do NOT want to sell cars at all!

Surprising for Porsche too. Especially when you consider all other group companies (VW etc.) are going all out with their display. North India is the biggest luxury car market, and the Auto Expo.....
